I sometimes have an itchy scalp and I need something to thoroughly clean my hair while relieving the itch and flakes. I had been using a brand name shampoo for this and it’s a medicated shampoo that contains coal tar. It does not have the best fragrance but it works. Coal tar shampoos are advertised to relieve dermatitis, psoriasis or dandruff. Coal tar is in a number of name brand dandruff shampoos.
While I was in two different stores I noticed the price rising. It was 4.95 (for an off brand) in one store and in the other store it had gone up to an unbelievable 9.99. Recently I went into a dollar store and was stunned to find a bottle of this shampoo for $2.50 for an 8.5 fl. oz. bottle. The store was called Family Dollar and the shampoo was called Therapeutic T+Plus Gel Shampoo.
I tried it because it has the same ingredient as the name brand. This shampoo works well. I will definitely be using it again instead of buying expensive name brand shampoos.
